For the wilderness adventurers who need versatile & lightweight gear, the TREEO Utility Hammock ($75) may be just the thing they’re looking for. This 3-in-1 Swiss Army Knife of hammocks has a patented structure that easily switches from a hammock to a weather shelter, to a ground cloth.
The secret to the TREEO is the Quick Draw Cord System that conforms to create the different usages. The guy lines are strung so that whether you are hanging it high for a sun/rain roof or just staked to the ground as a mat, the rip-stop nylon material can take the strain. With the cords pulled together, it draws the material into a hammock for sleeping off the ground.
The seams of the hammock are triple stitched for durability and taped for superior water resistance. There is a 6.5′ tree strap with 8 loops for secure hammock attachment. The paracord stays on the hammock are rated to hold 500 lbs. Flat, the TREEO is 7.5′ x 9′ and folds down to an easy 11″ x 9″ carry pouch.
